[rescue] Sun IPX Cdrom Booting issues

I have an old Sun IPX, which I am trying to install sunos onto via
The cdrom drive I am using is a Toshiba XM-5401B which I got out of my
Silicon Graphics O2 (also used it to install irix on my indigo) which
leads me to believe that it will enable me to install to the IPX.
I am able to boot the cd but when I try and install the miniroot,
either via the menu or via the single user shell, I get constant
errors, for example,
esp0: Targes 6.0 reverting to async mode
sr0: SCSI transport faied: reason 'data_ovr'": retrying command
and a load of other stuff, about current phase.
any ideas, or is the ipx realy picky about what it will use to boot
or is there a way using my sgi machines to netboot this machine?
I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware?
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care
